We had our Crealock34 in charter, in the San Juan Islands for 10 years. required a ASA rating to charter. wide range of sailors, including new grad's, to folks heading North in March for 3 weeks. we heard the range, "What a slow boat, wow what a dream, never sailed a smoother boat, all the other boats were throwing up, she glides with that drifter up, we were falling off those big ones and yelling give me more"
Throw on a drifter, don't pinch to weather, learn from the polar's, and we will be smiling when we get there....
In the San Juan's in summer 90% of all boats are under power, 10% are there to sail! don't know bout your area...

I have a PS37 that I keep in Victoria and have had her for a little over a year. I bought the boat for its heavy wind characteristics without giving any consideration to light wind characteristics. But after a spring sailing in the Gulf Islands, I took the route suggested by others and bought an asymmetric which has given me a lot of fun as well as some unintended excitement.

Even so, probably the next sail I add to my inventory is a storm sail as I hope to make it up to the Queen Charlottes this spring
